Antibiotic resistance is a huge threat to the human population. Seriously folks, bacteria have the ability to completely wipe us out. I know that sounds like the tagline for a dystopian science fiction book, one I wouldn’t mind writing. Unfortunately, the threat is all too real.
The biggest contributor, and therefore the best practice to STOP DOING, is giving antibiotics to animals raised for food. This is so true, and so obvious, that it’s unbelievable we we allow it to continue. Worse, we reward the people who do it when we buy their meat.
Which is why they don’t stop doing it.
